Cats, Ghosts and Other Scary Stuff

In true Halloween fashion I could not resist using the title to represent the different type of individuals that make a team function (or not function) as the case may be for some of you reading this.

In Patrick Lencioni’s best-selling book, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, he tells us a story about one firm’s executive team struggling with utter dysfunction. Ineffective communication, multiple egos, fear, office politics and judgmental attitudes were all contributing to the absence… Continue

How looking back can shape our future

As a society, we are very focused on the future and how we want to shape and change things. We tweet, we blog, we discuss, we meet all about how things ’should’ be. Yet rarely do we (Gen Y) actually take the time to really understand how we got to this point in the first place. We are a generation of thinkers. We are a generation of now. We are a now generation that see’s it isn’t right and just wants to jump in and fix it. We are a generation who (in many respects) doesn’t take the time to… Continue

Old School Recruiting and Social Media

I got into a conversation with the guy standing on a step-ladder changing light bulbs while I waited for my wife as she browsed the merchandise in a boutique clothing store.

Being the old school recruiter that I am, I quickly discovered that his name was Fabian, he was the owner of the store, it was newly opened store in the area, and we were his very first customers.

The reason why I am blogging about this conversation is because this guy said a few things that has some… Continue

Employers: Re-humanize yourself

Re-humanize yourself.... I work all day at the factory....I'm building a machine that's not for me.... There must be a reason that I can't see....You've got to humanize yourself -The Police

Lessons from the music world pertaining to employers dont come around often, but these lyrics ring true for today's recruiters.

Your company is faceless!

Thats right, my fellow friends, your company has no identity other than the image of a big impersonal… Continue

Feel Sorry for the Recruiter...

We are all so concerned about our jobs, whether we have one or not. Everything from blogs, the news and just about anyone you’ll speak with reminds us that the recession is still well under way and maybe the end, is well not as close as we think. We try hard to focus our attention on how best to pursue our career goals, even when there doesn’t seem to be much encouragement. We sometimes become so self-absorbed in our own career angst, that we often forget the one who is on the frontline trying… Continue

Economy Entrepreneurship

Because the economy hasn't turned around yet, many college students and graduates are looking in a different direction. No longer is there an expectation of "having that dream job" when graduating from college. I am seeing many 19-22 year olds becoming entrepreneurs more than ever before. Many of the people that I connect with in the business/entrepreneur world are seeing the same thing. College students are to be commended to looking into a "Plan B" for the future and not waiting to see what… Continue

How accountants can make recruiters’ jobs much easier

Over the last few weeks Mindset’s talent division started to receive an unusually high number of applicants from a large American medico-pharma company with a significant presence in Australia. This was unusual as this company has until recently had a high reputation for good HR practices and high staff engagement. Their employees have been hard to attract!

Our consultants started to probe deeper as to the reasons for the sudden change. It seems that with the GFC the company’s… Continue

To Tweet or Not to Tweet?

If you’re like many, you’re standing by observing this social networking frenzy – nothing short of a blitz – and wondering, what IS this stuff?? And why would I want to “follow” my local TV station anyway? It’s a big waste of time, right? Not so fast…

The simple fact is, there may soon come a time when having a Twitter account will be as critical to a business person as having a Blackberry. No longer an option, but a necessity. So get past your disdain for that which you’re not… Continue

Would Antoine Walker be a Good Recruiter?

An interesting question indeed. There are many recruiters, search consultants, headhunters or talent acquisition specialists (for the purpose of this article, all titles are interchangeable) whose skill and talent closely mirrors the approach he took to playing basketball.

Additionally, if you look at his career resume for his years in the NBA, as well as where he went to school, you will see the same trend that mirrors the career trajectory of a recruiter.

Let’s look at a… Continue

HR is the New PR

Hold on to your hats, folks. Your HR team is the new face of PR. Human Resource departments aren’t just cubicles full of paper processing, copy making, policy writing drones, they are the future of your company’s business success. Ask any corporate human resource professional, and they will tell you that they wear many hats from recruiting, to referee, operations expert, legal counsel, trainer, and now branding, public relations, and marketing experts. Yes, you heard me correctly, Public… Continue

Meaning Over Money; How Companies Can Add Value to Entry-Level Positions

With the economy beginning to turn around, entry-level job seekers are starting to shop around the job market instead of jumping at the first company who offers them a paycheck. Choosing a first job is a tough decision for anyone, but for recent college graduates, it’s their first leap into the real world.

A few months prior to graduation; my classes, email inbox and seemingly every conversation I had with my parents revolved around my job search. I hadn’t even ordered my cap and… Continue
